Met a friend there on a Saturday. Apple pancake delicious - it took a while for it to be cooked but servers were always filling coffee, etc.which made the wait pleasant. My friend had the pouched egg dish and she said it was cooked just right.It was crowded and the food on all the plates looked delicious (wish I wasn't... More

The omelets are huge,as are all the portions. Service from the bussers, waitresses & hostesses is very friendly. Prices are fair for the amount of food you get. You can enjoy a different soup of the day with lunch.

Visited this location multiple times. Breakfast was a winner, lunch not so much. For someone that prefers a healthy breakfast there are a few options. For those that like decadent breakfast there are many options.

Tried going there on a Sunday but the line for a table was "out the door"! So my family went back on a Tuesday morning and we were able to get a table without waiting. I had French toast with bacon. It was very good. Large portion which I couldn't finish! Service was good. Cute place. I'd go back if... More

Met some relatives here for a Saturday afternoon brunch. Got there around 12:30 and waited maybe 30 minutes. Even though all of the people in our party weren't there they still seated us. Once everyone arrived we ordered. I had a skillet with bacon and sausage. Everything about this skillet was delicious! The eggs (scrambled), cheese, hash browns, sausage and... More

We went on a Sunday morning to Annie's Pancake House, and it was quite busy, though the wait was less than five minutes. One thing that we did notice is that they seem to do a tremendous take-out business. Once we were seated, our meal came much quicker than I actually expected. We ordered an omelette and a tuna melt... More

This busy pancake house also serves a wide variety of lunch items. The pancakes are fluffy and delicious. A diner next to us had his with fruit and whipped cream - a truly impressive presentation! The club sandwich was as expected and very tasty. The waitstaff is very efficient and polite. This is a busy place so be prepared to... More

This place is hopping, was packed with diners- serves breakfast dishes when open as well as salads, burgers,various chicken sandwiches and deli sandwiches. I had an omelet with a side of GF pancakes. They do serve a bread basket with your meal but alas it was all gluten breads. Food was average, the pancakes were good, portions were large.

Our first visit. There was nothing special about Annie's Pancake House. Pancakes were fluffy but void of flavor. Corn beef hash was from a can, service was below average. It seems like a popular place but I don't know why.
